Experience

I took Cerelle originally to treat heavy painful periods which worked wonders because it stopped my periods and symptoms all together. I did notice a substantial weight gain and had bad acne on my back which I’d never suffered from before. I am currently trying other contraceptive options mainly due to the weight gain, but would not be opposed to going back on this pill if nothing else suits.
